Free Naturalization Information Sessions

Important Updates Regarding the 2020 Version of the Civics Test

On Dec. 1, 2020, USCIS implemented a revised version of the civics test for naturalization (2020 civics test). Due to recent policy changes, some applicants required to take the 2020 civics test may now have a choice to take the 2020 test or the 2008 civics test. Please note that beginning on April 19, 2021, USCIS will only offer the 2008 civics test at the initial interview appointment regardless of filing date.

For more information, visit The 2020 Version of the Civics Test page.

USCIS regularly holds information sessions for the public. These sessions will help lawful permanent residents and others interested in naturalization learn about the naturalization process, eligibility requirements, testing, and citizenship rights and responsibilities. See the table below for upcoming events in your area. Some of these sessions may be available in foreign languages. Each session is free of charge and open to the public. 

For helpful resources, check out our naturalization eligibility and preparation flyer (PDF, 627.04 KB), the USCIS Naturalization Interview and Test video, and Becoming a U.S. Citizen: An Overview of the Naturalization Process.

The contact information included in the table below should be used for questions about naturalization information sessions only. We are unable to respond to specific case inquiries.
